Sewing Plaids this time

I have to go to church this morning to help a lady check out the sewing machines we store there for an upcoming Quilt-a-thon in March (23rd). Then I get to come home and continue sewing on my heartstring blocks, plaids with a white center strip.
I even have the Izod label showing on one.

I really need to work on my taxes, so I may work a couple of hours on taxes, THEN play with plaids! I really like the way the plaids are looking. I wasn't sure since I wasn't gonna do them the way I'd seen them on someone's blog. Our version was much simpler (the other had cornerstones-4-patches- and white sashing).

I LOVE this idea! I'm impressed you got all the lines to run straight, too! very nice!

I got your comment, but your email showed up as no-reply. I can send you my info if you send me an email. :-)

I have your email...now. I got them to run straight by cutting them on the 'design' vs. the straight-of-grain,... although most of them were pretty straight.

LOVE those plaids with the white centre strips. I have lots of plaids, so it is something I might try myself. Thanks for the idea :)
